Here's a video from the dealership where I bought it. I didn't have the good fortune of getting this very enthusiastic sales guy. https://youtu.be/YhZL7yQb0yo

Nice! And ya, what a shame.

Why would they even consider putting any other wheels/tires on there in the first place?

That thing is SWEET! I like it with the steelies and whatever tires those are, Ko2's maybe?

Also, I'm kind of surprised it doesn't have a factory tach in the dash. I thought pretty much every newer Chevy did. I had a crew cab 6.0 gas that had factory tach and trans temp. I loved it.

Nice ride, congrats!

Thanks! Those are Goodyear Duratracs so I'm pretty pumped about that. I'd considered those for my Ford so I'm glad to get to give them a shot. I do like the steelies, I just wish they had a little bit of offset (or negative offset?) so that they were flush with the body.

Best I could tell from my research none of the Duramax vans (maybe none) of the HD vans at all) have an analogue tach. You can set the digital trip computer to read rpm though.

That's pretty handy. You can probably get trans temp via OBDII (Scangauge or otherwise) too, I just loved that Chevy dash with all that stuff laid out like it was.

Yep, I'm keeping my Scangauge from my Ford. Need to reprogram some of the X gauges on it likely. It's pretty nice have a factory trip computer again. I feel like fuel data, avg, distance til empty, etc will be more accurate. I love the Scangauge but I always thought those readings were off.

Love that gunmetal grey color. Congratulations on a great find.

There are CAN based tachs out there in the aftermarket if you wanted a dial type gauge on your dash somewhere.
